Christine Fellows, Said The Whale, Elisapie: CBC Radio 3's top 30 songs for the week of Nov. 19, 2018

Editorial Staff

Singer-songwriter Christine Fellows returns with a new album called Roses on the Vine, which was just released last Friday. She co-produced the album with partner John K. Samson, and it features performances from many of their collaborators and friends, including other members of the Weakerthans. The single "Unleashed" debuts at #23 on the top 30 chart this week.

Said the Whale recently signed to Arts & Crafts and shared the pop-influenced single "UnAmerican" from their upcoming full-length. Songwriter Tyler Bancroft recounted the origin of the song and described how the band came to work on it with label owner Kevin Drew via press release:

“Around November of last year it was suggested that Kevin Drew might be a good person to produce our upcoming record,” he recalls. “This was very exciting for me, as Kevin is one of my favourite musicians. I called him up, and as we spoke it became immediately apparent that he was in the bath, which was both disarming and strangely relaxing. The gentle lapping of bath water was somehow putting me at ease as I talked to one of my musical idols. At some point during the conversation he said to me ‘man, just do what you do best: write a pop song!’”

"UnAmerican" is the highest debut on the chart at #21.

Other debuts include "O My Enemy" from Casper Skulls, "Good While It Lasted" from Old Man Canyon, and "De-Evolve Again" from Mounties.

Elisapie describes her song "Arnaq" as an "ode to women" and the video, directed by Jonathan Brisebois, is set in her home village of Salluit, Nunavik, located in the most northern area of Arctic Quebec. The song surges to the #1 position on the top 30 after five weeks on the chart.
